Truckee, Calif. – Schaffer’s Mill Club, the acclaimed John Harbottle and Johnny Miller-designed golf course, will remain open for member and non-member/guest play through the end of October. While many Truckee/Lake Tahoe area golf courses close for the season by mid-October, Schaffer’s Mill is betting Mother Nature will delay cold temperatures for a few weeks. The average October daytime temperature in Truckee is a comfortable 62 degrees.
“After a late start to our golf season thanks to a couple of late spring snowstorms, we had an incredible summer at Schaffer’s Mill Club,” said Director of Golf Clint Bassett. “We’ve more than doubled our Club membership, completed our interim golf and sales facilities and experienced healthy member and guest play. By keeping the golf course open for a few extra weeks, we believe we can satisfy some of the pent-up golf demand for Members and guests.”
The Schaffer’s Mill Club is a private facility by charter; however, as the Club grows a limited amount of non-Member/guest play is available on the golf course. Special October non-Member/guest rates range from $105 to $145 depending on time of day and day of the week. Tee times may be arranged directly through the professional team in the Golf Shop by calling 530-582-6964 or online at www.schaffersmill.com. For all reservations made for October, the Schaffer’s Mill staff will ask for a guest’s phone number and will be in contact if inclement weather hits or is in the forecast.
